All Nighter #4

by David Hahn

Hahn's slackerish college life drama series keeps taking some unexpected turns.  Where before, things were mostly about Kat, a girl who sometimes steals, feels responsible for her mother's death and is secretly seeing her housemate's boyfriend, now the comic is just as much about Martha, the mousy new housemate who we know very little about.

In this issue, Martha and Kat share a moment on the rough of the All Nighter diner, as Kat finally talks about how her mother died, and how she feels like it's her fault.  After that, Martha disappears.  Previously, she's claimed  be Kat's guardian angel, and was shown doing something that looks a lot like casting a love spell on her.

I've been enjoying this book.  Sure, it keeps defying my expectations, which is always a good thing, but it's also just a very well-drawn series with strong and consistent characterizations.  It's worth checking out.
